Weekly Flag Challenge: Discussion & Entries

Depends what you mean by too far off...

Far enough in the future that there is no no recognisibility for us. Direct descent from current Earth states is nonexistent or not remembered (moon colony that was already posted would be near enough future that it is easily recognisable)
And/or also sci-fi universes with no Earth/direct fictionality rather than Future History AH.

That's way too far, sorry.
